It was a great experience and I really enjoyed knowing more than just the alphabet. I thank sir for coming and I will remember this always.


Good learning experience and the teacher was nice and helped us understand from his own perspective how to speak – showed us basic everyday words that apperaed confusing, VERY GOOD.


The experience has been amazing , as I have learnt lots of new ways in communicating.

Titus Salt , 6TH FORM

It was fun to learn sign language because it is something I never thought I could or would.


Really enjoyed and I like learning through conversation.

Harrogate Grammar School, Sixth Form

Aftab taught us how everyone is unique and it’s OK to be different.

I found it inspirational to learn a new language from scratch


Really enjoyed course. Will be good to use with our students. Thank you

I really enjoyed it, I feel like we learnt a lot but it wasn’t too serious so it was lots of fun.

Always answered our questions and made sure we understood what was going on.

Horsforth School, Year 12

Good amount of time to practice.

Horsforth School, Year 13

Better than learning French.

It’s good to talk to someone who is from the non hearing world.

Holy Catholic School, Keighley, Year 9

I enjoyed learning the sign language because my brother is deaf and it will help me at home.

I knew nothing about sign language before. And I can help someone with sign language.

Just thought you should know that the girls REALLY enjoyed the session yesterday they were showing me signs and were really buzzing!

BSL was an amazing experience, wherein I was able to expand my skills and hopefully aid the wider community with the knowledge I have learnt.  Thank you!

I have really enjoyed your sessions with us and I know the children have! Thank you, you have been a great teacher.

St Mary’s Primary School, Wakefield

Absolutely fantastic workshop.  Really engaging and the children enjoyed it! We all would love to learn more and wish the session was longer!

Holybrook Primary School, Years 2-6

Aftab taught pupils from aged 7-16. He inspired the pupils he worked with and they all found the lessons, engaging and challenging. We look forward to him coming back to Ackworth School as the pupils learned a great deal and want the lessons to continue. The lessons were imaginative and interactive.

Ackworth School

I thought it was great that Mr Hussain could come in and teach us what it is like to communicate differently.

Altofts Primary School, Wakefield, Student

Very clearly taught and structured. Was good and really helpful learning how to sign in a conversational way, rather than just vocab.

We have used Aftab for enrichment work with our year 9 students, which has been really empowering for the students as they begin to learn a valuable life skill.

Aftab delivered fun and informative signing sessions over 4 weeks. Our clients thoroughly enjoyed them and learned a lot!

Aftab has delivered the Sign Language Course to our students over the past few years.  The students found the course to be enjoyable and it helped them to understand the difficulties of communication faced by those with hearing impairment.

Ilkley Grammar School, 6th Form

He was very good at teaching us, he had a lot of patience and helped each individual in the class.

Student at Skipton Girls’ High School

The course was highly engaging and allowed me to broaden my knowledge – it now allows me to communicate with a wider range of people.

Student at Holy Family Catholic School

I absolutely loved today. Its been very informative … I would love to learn more Sign Language. And Aftab is adorable and so kind!

Sixth Form Student at Titus Salt School

We’ve learnt lots of new things and it was a really fun experience. It was interesting every week and we would love to learn more.

Sixth Form Students at Horsforth School

The course was an eye opener to the world of Sign Language.

Sixth Form Student, North Halifax Grammar School

I think the Sign Language course was a fun way to learn a new language and was very involving, it was very good how our teacher didn’t speak to us which made us use our brains to figure out what he was saying which made it easier to remember things. I think overall it was a good experience and I had a good time.
